The Most Dangerous Year, a film by a parent of a transgender child, documents the battle in Washington State to preserve decade-old code protecting transgender rights. Washington, a bastion of transgender inclusivity was perceived as a target of opportunity by hate groups after they failed to defeat marriage equality.
If this sounds familiar to Texans, it should.
We have personally been through this. This free screening of The Most Dangerous Year will give us an opportunity to reconnect and celebrate our victories, and of equal importance, serve as an awakening.
Our Most Dangerous Year may very well be forthcoming.
Co-sponsored by the Dallas Peace and Justice Center and Planet Transgender, the award-winning documentary with an unheard of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes will have a free screening on August 6, 2019 beginning at 7:00 pm.
In February 2016, the Washington State Senate voted on a bill to repeal a decade-old rule issued by the state’s Human Rights Commission. That rule was clarified in 2016 specifically allowing transgender Washingtonians the legal right to use public restrooms that correspond with their gender identity.
Following the bill’s defeat, haters began collecting signatures to have the issue on the ballot in November 2016.
This is their story, their history, and victory during their Most Dangerous Year.
